We know that MegaVoice audio players serve disabled children in remote mountain villages, minister to healthcare workers and hospital patients, and help oppressed women access God’s Word. But did you know that you can also get an accredited Bible degree for less than $1,000 with MegaVoice? Unfortunately, as accredited online Bible colleges have grown in popularity, their prices have steadily increased. However, through its Partnership with MegaVoice, Antioch Baptist Seminary offers a high-quality educational option that will work with anyone’s budget, schedule, or goals.
Introducing Dr. John W. Lewis, Antioch Baptist Seminary Founder
Dr. John W. Lewis, Litt.D., Th.D. Ph.D., has served in ministry for 46 years. Over the course of his ministry career, he’s had the privilege of successfully pastoring six different churches and writing thirteen faith-based books. In 2002, he felt called to start Antioch Baptist Seminary, an educational institution that strives to ‘support the local church by providing scriptural knowledge and practical training to better equip dedicated Christians to serve God and to minister to the spiritual needs of others.’ With this purpose in mind, he began to compile a library of courses on many Christian topics taught by himself and other ministry leaders.
Currently located in Ohio, the seminary reaches students around the world through its accredited remote degree programs. Dr. John and his colleagues teach a wide variety of courses on subjects including Soteriology, The Doctrine of Faith, Youth Ministry, Spiritual Gifts, and Christian Time Management (Dr. Lewis’ favorite course). Whether your goal is to start a church or simply improve your own Bible study skills, pursuing further education with Antioch Baptist Seminary can help you get the expertise you need to serve the church in a new capacity.
A Seminary Education in the Palm of Your Hand
While pastoring in Bradenton, Florida, Dr. Lewis met Allen Decker. Allen leads Accessibility Partnerships and Distribution at MegaVoice and he’s passionate about overcoming the barriers that keep people from pursuing Biblical education. Soon, Allen had a hunch that MegaVoice players could be the perfect next step for Antioch Baptist Seminary.
When the seminary started, lecture audio was distributed to remote students via cassette tapes. CDs eventually took over, but the process of duplicating and shipping CDs was laborious. Allen wondered if the MegaVoice Envoy 2 S Dual could be the perfect tool for distributing both lecture audio and audio Bibles in tandem. Dr. Lewis was on board.
Together, he and Allen developed an Envoy 2 S Dual model loaded with all of the seminary’s courses as well as the entire KJV audio Bible. Compared to cassettes and CDs, the Envoy 2 S Dual is revolutionary. The player is simple to load and cheap to ship. In addition, it’s far easier for students to carry a player with them throughout their busy days. Through the power of Partnership, MegaVoice helped equip Dr. Lewis to provide his students with a simpler, more convenient way to get a seminary degree!
There Are Dozens of Accredited Online Bible Colleges. Why Antioch Baptist Seminary?
As a pastor and teacher, Dr. Lewis’ goal has always been to help people attain their spiritual goals. He describes this as the most satisfying aspect of his work, and he spends his days making sure all of his students are cared for as they prepare for full-time ministry. “I want students who are preparing to serve in their churches, without quitting their jobs or moving away from their church or family,” he shared. “Also I wanted to make a school affordable for all, with both practical Bible knowledge and degrees for those answering a call to full-time ministry.”
Dr. Lewis has never met many of Antioch Baptist Seminary’s students, but these students have gone on to serve in full-time ministry roles across the country. He has become pastor to many of his in-person students, a role that he treasures. “We have experienced a lot of positive feedback from hundreds of happy students,” he said. The Seminary offers Associates, Bachelors, Masters, and Doctorate programs. These degree programs are composed of over fifty courses taught by Dr. Lewis and his professional associates.
